Luke Bushen


He would have been all of the things
that a man can be.
He would have achieved success to an
unbelievable degree.
He would have climbed the steps of life,
and lived it at the top.
He would have been untouchable;
The cream of the crop.
Doors, to him, were all wide open,
no wall stood in his way.
His life was potent with potential.
Oh, the man he'd be someday.

But it was caution, you see,
that stopped him in his tracks.
Caution turned his hopes to doubts;
Caution held him back.
Caution put a wall between
him and his big dreams.
It scared him from all challenges,
and tore down his self-esteem.
Caution buried everything
that he had to give.
Caution took his life, what's more,
it never let him live.
